Welcome! My name is Mrs. P (aka “The Pensive Sloth”) and I am an elementary teacher in Texas. I have taught Pre-K through 6th grade in a variety of settings–low income, high income, public, private, and magnet schools. I’ve even taught a wee bit of professional development!
Curriculum and instruction are my passion and as the field of education evolves, I think it is important that we build in the new without abandoning reason for “politically correct pedagogy.” I heard this at a conference a few summers ago and LOVED it! We have to do what we know works for kids. They’re depending on us. When I’m not teaching or thinking about teaching, I’m spending time with my family and dogs, reading, watching documentaries, trying desperately to keep my garden alive, writing, painting, making tacky crafts, and relaxing. Oh, and I’m really into sloths right now!
